Aubameyang rescues Arsenal after Leno howler

1 min read

Arsenal got their Europa League group stage campaign underway tonight with a 2-1 comeback win against Rapid Vienna in Austria.

Mikel Arteta’s Gunners secured Europa qualification thanks to victory in last season’s FA Cup final, having only finished eighth in the Premier League.

Thomas Partey was handed his full Arsenal debut in Vienna, though Arteta’s side lacked inspiration as the first half ended goalless. A Bernd Leno mistake saw them go a goal down after the break, but David Luiz levelled things up with a header, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang added another soon after to round out an unconvincing win.
